If trying to resolve offensive 'smelly dog' problems from the "outside-in", you will likely waste your $$ and efforts; the causative problem is almost certain to be INSIDE - involving a Digestive imbalance or DISORDER (Yeast overgrowth). The big question being - how many other symptoms are in play, making the resolution more difficult and complex. Trying to mess with odor-eliminators, sprays or other 'surface remedies' is not going to provide the desired result. Normally, your dogs smell should NOT be offensive if bathed 1 or 2 times/month. Before continuing, please visit our Symptom Checker list to make sure your dog does not have other symptoms that indicate more Complex Yeast overgrowth issues. If you get a score over 4, this means the problem is already involving more systems of the body, and the resolution will be more difficult, or COMPLEX; the SIMPLE answer below will likely NOT be enough help. The 6 examples on this page represent the direction your dog may be headed if you don't get it under control with NZYMES help.
COMPLEX: DOGS WITH NASTY ODOR OR SMELL + OTHER SYMPTOMS
With a Score of 4+ from the symptom checker, you have strong evidence of Yeast having overtaken the GUT in your dog, which is much worse than the yeast problems women are often familiar with. Odor in dogs is just one symptom of this broader and more troublesome issue: the digestive disorder known as Candidiasis, or Candida Albicans infection. All examples on this page are where this problem went unchecked TOO LONG (which you don't want). NOTE: Typical treatments of Steroids/Antibiotics serve only to suppress symptoms 'temporarily' as the internal problem continues to worsen. So, being in this COMPLEX category, you are going to need the maximum help for your dog, by using our NZYMES Healthy-Skin Program with either a Large KIT or a Small KIT.

SIMPLE: WHERE ODOR IS THE ONLY APPARENT ISSUE
Nutritional deficiency and/or Digestive imbalance is likely what needs to be corrected in this case (can be early stages of Yeast overgrowth). If bad breath is apparent, this would be another strong indicator. And, 1 or 2 NZYMES products will likely provide the help the body needs to correct these issues and move the body into a much more healthy realm. We First recommend adding the NZYMES Antioxidant Treats to the daily diet (you get an extra bottle free with 1st order). Then, to ENSURE maximum correction of digestive issues, and if budget will allow, we also suggest adding our specially formulated digestive enzymes/probiotic supplement, Bac-Pak Plus, to the daily diet. One bottle will last an under-60lb dog 2 years.
UNDERSTANDING THE BENEFITS OF ANTIOXIDANT TREATS
This 'super-food' supplement provides what is MISSING from the diet of every pet - LIVING FOOD, complete with "live enzymes". The degree to which a dogs body is benefited in the realm of restoration and repair alone is best demonstrated by observing how the BODY responds to NZYMES, via customer provided Video evidence. Take a few minutes to be totally fascinated by NZYMES in action: see Bella in Recovery from Paralysis; or, see LILY rebound from mobility issues such as Arthritis or Hip Dysplasia.
